"It's perfect for me because, I feel completely at ease at home. I'm not good in the 'real world' per se. I'm not good at keeping appointments. I'm not good at business or anything, but I can produce art as my dad did."

On her father supporting his children...

"My father was the most supportive man I've ever met. He preached to everyone that came in contact with him to find what you love and do it. The fact that we were doing what we loved, he was supportive of any decisions that we made."
